Incident Detection and Notifications
The device allows you to send your location to an emergency contact. This is a supplemental feature and should not be relied upon as a primary method to obtain emergency assistance. The Garmin Drive™ app does not contact emergency services on your behalf.
To use this feature, your device must be connected to the Garmin Drive app using Bluetooth® technology. You can set emergency contacts using the Garmin Drive app.
To use this feature, your device must be connected to a compatible external power source using the included mount or a USB cable.
Your zūmo® device uses built-in sensors to detect a possible vehicle incident.
If you set up an emergency contact, the device can send an automated text message to that contact when it detects an incident and your vehicle stops moving. This can help alert the contact to your situation if you are not able to call or send a message. This feature requires your device to be connected to the Garmin Drive app using Bluetooth technology and your phone to have an active mobile data connection to send a message.
If you have not set up an emergency contact, the device automatically displays the nearest address or geographic coordinates, if available, when it detects an incident. This feature is helpful if you need to tell emergency personnel your location.
If you have an inReach® satellite communicator connected to your zūmo device, you can manually send an SOS when your zūmo device detects an incident.
